Have you met our Community Card?

Our Spring Pledge Drive is set for April 16 through April 19, 2014 and there is a new benefit for contributing to your favorite radio station. Every caller who pledges during the drive will receive the new Community Card as a thank you gift.  52 Port Townsend businesses have signed on to support the community radio station by offering discounts available to Community Card holders that will save community members money.  

“The Community Card brings benefits for both our members and our local business owners who have come up with some great offers for loyal KPTZ listeners,” says Colin Foden, our Board President. The cards offer tangible value and reward doing business in town. It’s a new way to support KPTZ, solidify your business brand and reach out to new and existing customers.  It's a win-win!  For more information on being a part of the community card contact underwriting@kptz.org

This is What Makes KPTZ Special

Chris Granstrom, one of our station's many amazing volunteers, without asking came over and re-planted the flower beds on both sides of our building here at the Mountainview Commons.  He is a professional landscaper who saw a need and took care of it!  It's the people--people like Chris--who make KPTZ what it is.  Thank you to all our incredible volunteers and to our supportive community for coming together and being a part of this special station.  



We're Looking for a Few Good Voices . . .

Help KPTZ prepare for our Spring Fund Drive by recording a testimonial about what you love about your local radio station. This will be fun, simple, quick and your voice will be heard!!

Become an important part of our Spring Drive in letting other listeners hear about the  benefits you receive from having a local community radio.  You can share some brief thoughts of your own, or read from a script which shares ways KPTZ provides services to our listeners.  We hope to hear from you soon!  We know this will be a fun and positive experience for all you do to help keep KPTZ on the air.  We wouldn't be here without you!

KPTZ Participates in Community Read 2014

KPTZ joins the Port Townsend Public Library for the annual celebration of a book and author.  All of us are invited to read, discuss the book, and meet the writer. This year's author is Atina Diffley.  Her book,  Turn Here Sweet Corn , chronicles her life in the formative years of the Organic Farming movement in the US.

In the month of March on KPTZ you can hear Atina interviewed by Cris Wilson, host of Booklovers' Cafe, and organizer of the Community Read.

Turn Here Sweet Corn  is also celebrated by a special program of excerpts from the book, read by several local organic farmers.   This was produced live for PT  Shorts at Gallery Walk on March 1,  and recorded for radio in the KPTZ studios.

Check our KPTZ schedule page ..... look for Booklovers' Cafe   and   Community Read: Turn Here Sweet Corn.   Both programs will be broadcast several times this month, leading up to Atina Diffley's visit to Port Townsend.
